Interning as a Dentist in Ghana with Projects Abroad
In the capital city of Accra our dental interns work in the dental department of La Polyclinic, in central Accra. On your arrival at the hospital, the Projects Abroad coordinator and your project supervisor, who will be a member of the hospital staff, will discuss your work schedule with you.
